The Australian Capital Territory may be geographically pint-sized by Aussie standards, but the home of the country’s capital packs a punch.

Conveniently placed at the midway point between Sydney and Melbourne, every corner of the ACT asserts considered design. From Canberra’s architecturally appealing streets to its inspiring museums and galleries, the ACT is a tailor-made treasure. Go on a tasting tour of the ACT’s wineries and farm-gate providores. Almost half of the territory is made up of national parks, which can be traversed via twisting trails or hot-air balloon rides.
